Transylvania offers students a varied menu and extended dining hours.
Students living in Forrer, Clay, Davis, and Poole halls should purchase a meal plan, either a 19-meal-per-week plan or a 14-meal plan. Special meals are available for students with medical needs. In addition, you can try some of the other great eateries on campus — Jazzman’s Café, the Rafskeller, or the 1780 Café.
Forrer Dining Center
The traditional campus cafeteria is anything but ordinary. Located in Forrer Hall, this spacious facility with a window wall overlooking a courtyard is the main dining center. It serves three meals a day and offers a wide selection — including a self-serve ice cream bar — available at several themed stations, including international, deli, pizza, Balanced Way, and salad. You’ll even find Kentucky’s soft drink, Ale-8-One, at the soda fountain.
The student grill, known as “the Raf,” offers lunch and dinner in an energetic atmosphere, perfect for a quick study break before class or a Rafburger while you hang out with friends or professors. The Raf contains WoW Café and Wingery and Sub Connection. Located in the Mitchell Fine Arts Center, the Raf is named for renowned botanist Constantine Rafinesque, who taught at Transylvania in the 1800s. Rafinesque is a legend in Transylvania’s history and is now entombed in Old Morrison, the administration building.
This late-night gathering spot in Thomson Hall is open to all students. The 1780 Café features Sandella’s, a café that specializes in fresh, made-to-order flatbread pizzas and sandwiches, and provides a lounge atmosphere for socializing and studying with friends.
Located in the Glenn Building, this coffee shop offers fresh-baked goods, salads, and sandwiches. Try a fair-trade coffee, cappuccino, tea, or smoothie while you hop on the wireless network to do some homework or update your Facebook status.
